Dumac Designs Three Design Build Schools for the Province of Nova Scotia
In 2012-2013 the Department of Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal commissioned the building of three new construction design-build educational facilities. The projects were South Queens Middle School in Liverpool, NS, New Glasgow P-8 School in New Glasgow, NS and West Highlands Elementary School in Amherst, NS.
Dumac Energy Limited has been part of the successful design build teams for all three projects. The Liverpool School opened in January 2014 while both the New Glasgow and Amherst facilities are currently under construction.
Design Build projects involve the consultants partnering with contractors to complete the project. Dumac Energy has worked with the contractors to help to ensure the drawings and specifications meet the owner’s requirements and the contractor’s budget and schedule.
